Opportunities for Community Engagement

Faculty and staff community engagement opportunities

  • Briggs & Al's Run for Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
  • Future Milwaukee Leadership: Future Milwaukee is a community leadership program with more than 1,500 graduates. For over 35 years, participants have been making an impact on the Greater Milwaukee area through their leadership positions in government, business, education, religious and non-profit institutions.

    As a measure of the organization’s success and status, beginning in 2005, Future Milwaukee became affiliated with Marquette University’s College of Professional Studies. Our mission is to develop, motivate and empower diverse, ethical leaders who create positive change in greater Milwaukee through effective civic engagement.
  • Hunger Clean-up
  • Innovation Fund
  • The President's Challenge
  • Service Learning Program: The Center for Teaching and Learning is home to the nationally recognized Service Learning Program. Service learning is a type of experiential learning that engages students in service within the community as an integrated aspect of a course. The pedagogy allows students to learn in practice what they are learning in theory in the classroom. A wide variety of community-based projects and placements are available as well as opportunities for community-based research. Faculty interested in incorporating this community-based pedagogy into their classes are encouraged to schedule an appointment with the program director, Kim Jensen-Bohat.



Student studying on campus


Driven to realize Marquette’s Catholic, Jesuit mission, students, faculty and staff strive to play an increasingly vital role in our city and our world, working with our partners to tackle pressing challenges and build hope where it’s needed most.

Established in early 2016, the university’s Office of Community Engagement serves as the central clearinghouse for community engagement activities, with a focus on bidirectional, community-based research partnerships.
